Overview

The first and only guide to bicycling the national parks and wilderness areas of Oregon and Washington.

Bicycling is becoming an ever-more popular option as some national parks are closing roads to cars. This complete adventure guide to the national parks of Oregon and Washington features 58 road and mountain bike rides through the parks' most spectacular natural areas. The stunning geographical diversity of Washington and Oregon is perfectly captured by their national parks and recreation areas, and the best way to explore these spectacular national treasures is to get out of your car and onto a bike. David Story has sought out routes of all levels and lengths for both road bikes and mountain bikes in this new guide. From the arid sagebrush landscape of John Day Fossil Beds National Monument, to the glaciers capping Mount Rainier National Park, to the volcanic legacy of Crater Lake, to the temperate rain forest of Olympic National Park, the national public lands of the Pacific Northwest offer stunning views, invigorating air, and a mix of easy to strenuous rides. These riding opportunities can only improve with time, as the parks continue to restrict automobile use to better preserve and protect their natural beauty. Each of the 58 ride descriptions include a detailed map, tour directions, information about the trail or road surface, sights along the way, and the length and difficulty of the ride. In addition, a trip-planning appendix for each park tells you where to stay or camp, do your laundry, eat, buy supplies, and repair or rent a bike.

    A superb addition to a great series

    I purchased this book after reading a glowing review from the San Francisco Chronicle about it. I'm glad to say, the review was right on the money. This latest addition to the Bicycling America's National Parks series is informative, helpful, and really captures the atmosphere and vibe of the different national parks it covers. I recently used it on a trip to Eastern/Central Oregon and found some wonderful rides. The author presents everything you need to know in a clear, sometimes dryly funny way. The pictures are great too. In short, it's got everything you'd ever want in a guidebook.
